Love Weekends

On Thursday night Robert and I decided that we would run up the canyon for the weekend. No one was around so it was just him and me. It was good that I had to run down for a bridal shower on Saturday afternoon, because by about 10:00 a.m. saturday morning he was bored. You know when we go with the whole family he is complaining (HAHA) about having to bring the kids 4 wheeler, the kids bikes, our bikes, the wagon etc... But I laughed at him because he really did not have the best time without everyone there. If you know Robert, he can not just sit and read a book or enjoy the sun. Anyway I am not sure that there will be many more weekends without the kids.
On Sunday afternoon we received a phone call from a lady who visited with Tyson at church on Sunday. She asked him if he wanted her to call anyone. So she called Lauren and us. She wanted to know if he was at church the following sunday did I want her to tell him anything, so of course you all know me. I started blubbering. I told her just to give him a big hug and kiss and tell him that we love him and are proud of him. She kind of laughed and said you want me to kiss him. Anyway it was very nice of her to take the time and do that. We do not have an address yet. I am hoping that we get something this week.
Last but not least. Bre I laughed out loud when I read your post about the cookies... I have one to tell on the same line.
It was April fools day a few years ago and Robert had put one of the guys that he works with up to calling me and telling me that he was new in town and he needed to insure his house, cars, boat, 4 wheelers and last but not least his body parts as he was a dancer.. Then he paused, and said can you do this, I knew this was Robert's doing so I said you bet we can . All I will need is for you to stop by our office and I will have to inspect each and every body part. There was a very long puase... I could hear the guys laughing in the background. I said why don't you tell them what I said, He said out loud... He did and the busted up laughing.
Later that afternoon I went to Albertson's and bought 2 trays of brownies.. I drove up to Trojan and as soon as I got to the breakroom several of the guys including Robert came out and said boy did you get us good.. our joke backfired on us.. haha.. So you are bringing brownies to say you are sorry.. I just smiled and said yes.. 2 of the guys took the brownies from me and started to walk off, Robert said WHAT A MINUTE... Gayle what did you do to them, I looked really innocent and said nothing, but be sure to eat the ones in the middle first and drove off.
That night Robert came home and said I hope that I don't lose my job, you know so of the bosses came over and at some of those brownies and if any of them get sick I am dead. The best part of this joke was that there was not anything wrong with them and it was great to just watch them and have them think there was. I think if you ask Robert today. He will tell you that I did do something to those brownies.
Have a great day !

Whirl Wind

My Young Women have their fund raiser every year on the Saturday before Mother's Day making corsages. We get the order's from the men in our ward and then we make them and deliver them on Saturday. After a couple of years of really hard work it has turned into a great fund raiser.
While I was at the church the rest of the family went to the Spanish Fork Fireman's 100th Birthday celebration. There was a breakfast, a parade with fire trucks from all over Utah. Then there was a program at the ball field. They all said that it was awesome to see the old trucks and the retired firefighters. Robert is the Historian for the department so he has Emily do a CD to music with picture from 1908 to 2008. She did a wonderful job. It was alot of work for her but it was very much appreciated by everyone.
Sunday was a wonderful Mother's Day. After church we went and took some family pictures and then went to Trent and Emily's and watch the Jazz kick the Laker's butt's. After that we went down to my sisters house and had a family mother's day dinner. And most important, Robert gave me the best Mother's Day/Birthday present.... A new lens for my camera that I have been crying for, for quite awhile. I am really going to have to start making some money with my camera. HAHA
Tuesday Tyson had to leave for SLC. And This morning Robert and I went up while he was swearing in. I am glad that we were able to be there. Even though this whole Army things scares the crap out of me, I AM so proud of him.

Here are a couple of pictures that I was able to take.

As you can see I still have not figured out the picture thing. I guess we will have to have a lesson on that for FHE.
This past weekend Robert and I went to his nephews funeral in Ferron. Trent and Tiffany went with us. It was very sad he has 4 little kids that he has custody of. I hope that everything works out for his parents and those cute little kids.
After the funeral We headed for St. George to spend the weekend with our couples Bunco group. They went a day before us so we were pretty excited to get down there. These 6 couples have been getting together for about 10 years now. For the last 3 years we have been going down to my bosses house in St. George for the weekend once in the spring and once in the fall. We have so much fun. We don't get much sleep and we just hurt from laughing. Robert did not fill very good all weekend but he was such a sport and we just drug him along.

Just a reminder for all those who blog if you are apart of the Garbe clan. Don't forget our Family Reunion August 15th-17th. Just a note, I have had a few people say that they were not going to come because they could not get Friday off. Don't worry, I really was just thinking that everyone would get their when they can on Friday after work.

P.S. Tiffany take the tracker thing of your blog LOL.
